Johnny learns that the police think the robbery was an insurance scam. Kirk is nervous about giving a speech about the maternity unit closure so takes up Beth's suggestion of entertaining the audience with jokes instead.

Aidan has nowhere to go as the flat is in Eva's name. He asks to stay with Johnny but Johnny refuses as he ruined everything with his affair.
